As of March 5, the Texas Department of Health and Human Services reported that there are no confirmed cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in North Texas, and further stated that the risk for all Texans remains low.
While that is great news, we wanted to remind our church family and guests that along with your spiritual well-being, your physical well-being is our top priority. Our leadership is prayerfully committed to staying proactive and going the extra mile to keep our campus safe and clean. Please note these prudent measures we are taking to ensure that worship is safe and comfortable:
- We will sanitize frequently touched surfaces before and after every service such as doors, handles, tables, water fountains, check-in stations, and sinks.
- Our staff and volunteer teams will wash their hands frequently and stay home if they are sick. In addition, any food service teams will wear gloves when they serve.
- We will provide additional hand sanitizer stations around campus for everyone to use.
- All preschool and kids’ areas on our campus are professionally cleaned and disinfected on a weekly basis, in addition to a complete surface wipe down each day. Staff and volunteers are following a stringent protocol to ensure that our babies, preschoolers, and kids are as well-protected as possible.
Here’s what you can do to help:
- If you or a family member are sick, please stay home (worship with us via PCBC Facebook).
- If you’re not sick, come to church. In times of community fear and anxiety, coming together as the church is more important than ever. God has not called us to live in fear but in faith. As the Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
- Pray that the virus would cease to spread. Pray for individuals and caregivers directly impacted by the illness.
Going forward, we will remain in continual communication with Dallas County and Texas State Health Officials. We are also monitoring the status of the virus and following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We will continue to assess and share information in a timely manner.
Thank you, church! I am thankful for you.
Dr. Jeff Warren, Senior Pastor
